Think about what you are doing a bit here.  You want to store the pictures
outside of your document_root, yet you want to reference them directly
from a web page.  That makes absolutely no sense.  By definition,
something that can be accessed directly through your web server must be
accessible from your document_root.

The way to do this is to write a little PHP wrapper script that you stick
in your document_root that does a readfile() on the file stored outside of
the document_root.
